1987 Jeep xj "Crazy Ray"

Hi everyone,
I'm Mike and I just got my first Jeep. Its a 1987 Jeep xj and it needs quite a bit of work before its on the road again. I forgot to take pictures when I first got it so I don't have any.

The first thing we did was take out the seats and take out the carpet.

The floor was pretty rusty so soon were getting some plate metal and patching the whole back and doing some small patch work toward the front seats.
Next we had to put a new brake rotor on and the brake pads or going on this weekend.

I don't have a set plan for the jeep yet but all I know is its going to be my DD so I'm not going to to any thing crazy. The jeep already has a lift and nice tires so I don't have to worry about that. I'm working with a high school pay check so this might be a slow build. But thanks for stopping by and I'll be sure to keep you guys poasted

So after my last post I realized I had not pictures of my Jeep besides the Carpet. So I went outside and took a few more pictures. Here they are

I forgot to mention the Jeep is missing the grill, front bumper and fender.

Got bored today and did some more work on the jeep.

I grabbed a head unit out of a project car me and my dad have and put it in the jeep.


I also cleaned up the console a bit.

Got some more work done today.

We found another rust hole. Were going to start patching soon.


I took of my fenderflares and started to sand them down a bit and paint them.




They turned out great.


We started to gring out some of the surface rust in the back.


I washed it and waxed it. It looks good
